thing interesting is secretary of state clinton kept her distance from the israeli-palestinian issue. i think you will see secretary kerry in the middle of this. clinton may have been thinking about the pobbletd of running for president someday, john kerry has been there, done that. and heard in that clip where prime minister netanyahu said the iranians would not move unless there was a credible threat of military action, and you heard the president come out very clearly saying containment is not my policy, they're not going to get a weapon no matter what we need to go do. and i think even though he's said that before, they needed to hear it right there and the iranians needed to hear it right there. >> while he was over there, there were some pretty horrific accusations coming out of syria, from both sides, that chemical weapons had been used. how credible was that? and what does that do to the whole international posture on syria? >> you know, the accusations were made very generally about chemical weapons being muse -- used but there was no mention of nerve gas or sarin or any of the
an enemy, and the friendly bill clinton coming to israel and winning the hearts of israelis instantly, although their positions were very critical of israeli policy, definitely is a d saddat. the trick for president obama now, and i think this is exactly what he's trying to do. he says trying to clinton-ize himself, reach out and give the israelis the hug they did not get for four years. if this works, that lays the foundation for a renewed peace process, then he can come with the difficult stuff and say to israelis, i love you so much, i care for you, i stand by you, therefore you must act now and take some risks in order to improve your position, dealing with occupation and see the middle east as it is. >>> and the middle east as it is, you understand this region so well, post-arab spring, with the real danger on israel's doorstep, not only syria in civil war, but egypt in a potential meltdown of security t. how does he deal with that? >> i think think a fair, interesting and challenging moment. he challenges everybody. israelis must realize they have to deal with occupation and sto
-sex marriage. hillary clinton, who if she wants to run in 2016, she's going to -- she's in favor of same-sex marriage. any democrat who runs has to be in favor of it. republicans at this point still undecided. >> it's a more dicey territory. quickly, it's amazing to me that people forget, president obama, then senator obama, and then senator clinton, both oppose gay marriage and supported civil unions in the '08 presidential campaign five years ago. now, it's march madness so the tournament is over for me after georgetown. but the good thing is, i still have senate madness. i have the nbc political unit, i can still focus on a bracket and not shed tears. tell me where we stand. >> four match-ups we want to point to today. the 1-16s versus the 8-9s. and ted kennedy, our overall number one, the legislator versus lloyd benson who won our play-in match-up. >> benson beats graham. >> benson beats graham. and lots of votes online, almost 1,000 votes, maybe more. so everyone get out and vote today. and robert byrd versus tom daschle on the other side. so robert bird who did so much for west vir
that hillary clinton is publicly supporting same-sex marriage. of course, her husband, former president bill clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to

this ball, the middle east peace process and tried to deal with it. bill clinton years on it, george w. bush at the end of his term. we'll see if president obama has success. he came here with a somewhat dysfunctional relationship with the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, and they were actually have been frosty in the past and either they're great actors or becoming better friends. >> it was important success the president accomplished getting israel to apologize to turk key for the deadly commando raid in 2010 that killed nine people. he's pushing israel to start peace talks with palestinians. how likely is that to get back on track and how important is the apology from benjamin netanyahu? >> reporter: the two things are not connected at all but could be connected down the road. turkey is a key u.s. ally, israel is a key u.s. ally, syria is in the middle. iran, you have questions what's happening in egypt, these are two countries in the region the american president needs to trust and likes to trust, he'd like to work together on the big challenges. the relationship in turkey the
. >> sure. >> thanks. >>> could bill clinton be talking out of both sides of his mouth? the report that suggests escorting two candidates for the same office. we will talk about that. >>> first though, kristen cinema is here, very excited about being here. we just had a 15-minute conversation to make up. we can't talk about that. we can talk immigration, marriage equality and how her freshman year on capitol hill is going so far. come back. do we have a mower? no. a trimmer? no. we got nothing. we just bought our first house, we're on a budget. we're not ready for spring. well let's get you ready. very nice. you see these various colors. we got workshops every saturday. yes, maybe a little bit over here. this spring, take on more lawn for less. we can't talk about that. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. get ortho home defense, we can't talk about that. t let's get a recap, merv.

. and big news from former ap politics, hillary clinton announces support for gay marriage and joins possible candidates in that position. here is part of the announcement. >> i supported personally and as a matter of policy and law embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. >> greta: that message putting secretary clinton in line with other potential democratic candidates for 2016. and check out this headline from the huffington post weird news. the weirdest cocktail party ever included fried cockroaches and scorpions and one of the courses tarantulas. no that's not chicken, it's ostrich. and waiters passed around fried cockroaches. and why the weird menu? the explorers club says it's adventure. and a news anchor making her breaking news. >> and lurnd that a huntsville news anchor is being proposed to on live tv right now. >> after overcoming her shock the anchor tweeting did i just really get proposed to live on air? yes, i think i did. and holy cow, that's a proposal. congrats to the happy couple and now it's your turn to
of unresolved things by taking a stand and speaking forcefully for it. >> that was bill clinton after walter mondale lost it. after jimmy carter lost. we had a dynamic governor who was reformed minded and brought those issues into the national forefront. he really helped recharge the democratic party. you know, the republican party is out to lunch. i watched cpac, karl. karl was a former friend. >> i thought i was a current friend? >> you're always a friend, you owe me some chili. >> some fried chicken. >> i saved your life from malaria. >> i did. we go back a long way. here's the thing, the republican party is out to lunch. it's not just mechanics. it's not just communications. it's the party that continues to reject the majority of the american people and they feel it they don't want to be associated with a party that talks down to them, that attacks their rights and then call them victims. i think they're out to lunch. as far as i'm concerned, i will give them a bus ticket to continue to stay off the national radar. >> when i was covering the white house and karl was in it with george w.
made clinton, bush and obama ineligible for the presidency because of marijuana arrests. we'd have to reimagine president paul songis or president mario cuomo. now we're in kornacki land. those are not horrible options. what wants to choose a president from a list of guys who were young in the '60s and 7 os i'70 so stiff and frumpy they never tried it? arrests, for possession, not for sales, and for possession of marijuana, not harder drugs. why are we still conducting the war on drugs? criminalizing weed smokers, militarizing police and spending trillions to stop nothing. in the '70s, most criminalnolol experts concluded prison does not significantly deter crime and those with meaningful life opportunities were less likely to engage in crime regardless of the penalty, while those who went to prison were far more likely to commit crime in the future. prisons don't prevent crime. they create criminals. and america has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. what are we doing? happy monday. and now, my friend and yours, karen finney in for what's his name. don't tell me. don'
the united states gets it over israeli objections. >> my perspective goes back to the clinton administration because i was working for president clinton in the second term. he was clearly personally dedicated to peace. he reached out. i think we got close. he got close at camp david. it does show the united states in that example can be both israel's ally and the broker who brings everybody together and, by the way, we would be talking later if you look at i don't think peace with jordan, for example had much of a cold war significance. i think we really have tried to encourage -- >> he could have gotten that any time. that was an easy deal. >> i'm not sure it was that easy but you want happened. let's cheer our successes when they do. there are some examples where israel has been able to make peace with its neighbors. it's a good thing. >> here's my question. this is an interesting point. if you move in the circles of basically kind of center left over, right, which people who are liberals zionist, who love israel but want a two state solution all the way to people who are, don't agree with
want and you actually expect bill clinton it's not president obama to say. but privately he is grousing. do you see in the 50's a man that is at war with himself over what he believes? >> i can see that. one of the most interesting things following this thread of mixing and civil rights, i mentioned the trip to africa and 67, and that's where we met martin luther king, dr. martin luther king who was 28-years-old at the time and nixon they've really got along. particularly trying to see nixon to lobby for the administration you wanted to get to eisenhower. they said sure, come and see me. they met in washington at the office and they stayed in touch regularly. and king really felt they had a correspondence he was really admired pity and he had a good sensitivity about this. the one black man and eisenhower's white house salmon named fred mauro and he wrote a book called a black book in the white house and he felt completely sort of alienated. people he felt prejudice but he felt -- he said fred i don't think you should always be talking about job issues that affect black people. i think
unelected judges. >> for the first time in her long political career, hillary clinton came out in support of same-sex marriage in a video that your organization released this week. the former secretary of state, u.s. senator, 2008 presidential candidate, backed benefits for same-sex couples but never made an endorsement for marriage. she says it's about equality. listen. >> gay rights are human rights. and human rights are gay rights. and the united states would be a leader in defending those rights. >> do you think this is move to influence the supreme court like the american academy of pediatrics and others trying to get the opinion out there now before the court decides? >> i think what you see from hillary clinton and from the american academy of pediatrics and more and more figures public and private, more and more organizations, this is the issue in front of the court and in front of the american people in a way that it never has been before and lots of folks want to make sure their position on the issue is clear and you have seen more and more folks coming out for equality because
if they want to put mark sanford back on the ballot. plus, hillary clinton fuels 2016 speculation with a new video released yesterday that's sure to please many in the democratic base. it's not just fueling speculation -- >> she just -- >> what? she's running, but she wanted just in case people came up to her and didn't know what her position was -- she wanted to clarify. >> if anyone needs the answer to the question, she is. thank you, we'll be right back. >>> i've cut spending, reduced debt and made government more accountable. more recently, i've experienced how none of us go through life without mistakes. but in their wake, we can learn about grace, a god of second chances and be the better for it. in that light, i humbly step forward and ask for your help in changing washington. >>> i'm sorry for all the mistakes i've made. sugar, just give me one more chance. >> break up with career politicians, the right guy, teddy turner, conservative republican, economics teacher, not politician. >> wow. today's primary day in south carolina where 18 republican candidates -- >> 18. >> that's a lot.
. namely that a top adviser to then secretary of state clinton may be under the sway of the muslim brotherhood. that drew sharp criticism at the time. republican colleagues including john mccain called her out on it publically. we invited michele bachmann to come on the program to talk abouter her latest allegations. she declined. the invitation stands open n. the meantime dana bash tried keeping them honest and joins us. you had to chase down the congresswoman. what did she tell you? >> last time i ran after michele bachmann on one of the issues i told you the bad news is she can walk fast in heels. the good news is so can i. h this time she was moving so fast it tested my endurance. i told her i wanted to talk about her speech at cpac, about questionable accusations made about the president's lavish lifestyle. here's how it went. >> i want to ask you is that you said -- you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog walker which is not true. >> the big point of my speech was about benghazi. this was an absolute disaster a. >> you also made specific
be allowed. we've seen the president, obama change his mind. president clinton changed his mind. hillary rodham clinton came out and spoke about it. republican rob portman spoke about it. and i think, wolf, there's a question here about whether this shift in public opinion is actually going to affect the supreme court. those justices sitting on the bench. when you talk to both sides of the argument, one side says, the side that's for same sex marriage, will say, you know, maybe it will help us because the court won't think it's such a heavy lift to rule in favor of same sex marriage. they won't be going against public opinion and in the way they were against interracial marriage, for example. or on the other side, they say the court will also say, look. it's proceeding in the states. you know, you now have eight or nine states who have approved same sex marriage. public opinion is shifting. let it play out with the voters and the court's not the place to do it. >> they're very conservative ideas at play here, too. back in 1996 when the court passed the defense of marriage act a lot of pe
president clinton signed in 1996 which bans federal marry i marital bs for same sex couples legally married in their states. you said that states have the right to de. to the is conservative isn't marriage a state issue and federal interferences wouldn't that be unconstitutional? >> i don't think so and neither did a democratic president. a lot of people are changing their minds because there has been a full court blitz by the popular culture by elites, by all kinds of folks to intimidate and cower people and no longer defend marriage as being between a man and a woman. >> chris. >> chris: go ahead, nicolle. >> chris, chris, the biggest problem that mr. bauer faces not just this morning but moving forward is that more than 65% of his own base self-describing evangelical christians under the age of 33 support marriage eequality. 80% of people in this country right, left, democrat, republican, man, woman, support marriage equality. more than 60% of all americans everyone supports marriage equality. and that very same activist court that he railed against with such hostility this morning alway
american presidents who have shown up in israel, clinton went four times. >> right. >> bush went in 2008. they went in a moment that they were on the cusp of israeli -- >> and the president's coming to close a deal. >> ambassador, i'll have you hold that thought because i'm going to take you right now to the president who is being introduced. they are inside the residence there of shimon peres. let's take a listen to both gentlemen speak. >> president obama, it is a great privilege for me and for the people of israel to host you here in jerusalem. it was a real pleasure to sit with a true friend, very knowledgeable, unfortunately, and see that we can agree and discuss with you openly and freely. after the meeting we just had, i am with more confidence that your vision can be transformed the middle east. your vision is achievable. you arrived here already with an impressive record of answering our needs. particularly an unforgettabley n the domain of security. i want to thank you personally, dear friend, for the long days and for many long, sleepless nights that we know about them, which
secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the efforts that formed a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry who's deeply involved in that effort as well. and we are providing not just words but resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan, but there are a whole bunch of people who are internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily. and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily, then it's criticized for going in militarily. and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily. and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context a
. >> right. >> chris: which president clinton signed in 1996. which bans federal marital benefits for same sex couples who are legally married in their states. you have acknowledged states have the right to declare, to decide that same sex marriage is legal. as a conservative, isn't marriage a state issue and, therefore, should federal interference, wouldn't that be unconstitutional? >> well, i don't think so. and near did a democratic president and overwhelming -- >> he changed his mine, though. >> of course a lot of people are changing their minds because there has been a full-court blitz of -- blitz by the popular culture, by elites and all kinds of folks to intimidate and to cower people into no longer defending marriage between a -- >> let me bring -- go ahead, nicole. >> chris, chris, the biggest problem that mr. bauer faces, not just this morning but moving forward is that more than 65% of his own base, self-describing evangelical christians, under the age of 33, support marriage equality. 80% of people in the country, right, left, democrat, republican, man, woman, support marriage
, it had been created by president clinton. the affordable care act will help provide the health coverage that is needed by millions of americans. i rise today to speak particularly about texas. some 24% of the population of texas are uninsured. and yet our state government has refused to accept the expanded medicaid. so today, mr. speaker, i make a public plea on behalf of the millions of texans who get up and work every day, who do not have health insurance, to be able to have a state government that is ignoring their plea, that is to have expanded medicaid to provide health insurance for working texans and poor texans. those that work as well below the minimum wage. it seems selfish that the concerns of those who lead state government are all political and not in any way concerned about the mothers and fathers and children who all the medical professionals from county governments to private practice have said expanded medicaid coverage, if taken by the state of texas, like florida, like ohio, will save lives. do it now. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back
after clinton had seen president assad in geneva. prior to the trip, the prime minister conveyed to us what it was he wanted out of it. he produced what he wanted to see come out of it. i walked into the meeting feeling highly confident. we did what you asked. the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. if you go into these meetings in the expectations are very high, each reader is suddenly worried about what you are going to ask of them. when are low, you are in a better position to have a serious conversation and can explore the possibilities. maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about, what are the consequences of not getting anything done? with each side. enough, howsevere can we think together about what it is that could be possible? where could there be some points of commonality we could build on? , theret you will have will end up being serious conversations in private that are much more likely to be held precisely because no one is anticipating that he is coming then
clinton and exploded our nation's debt. now after a decade of reckless financial management, the majority is proposing another budget that is unserious as it is extreme. take for example the field of scientific research. more than 50% of our economic growth since world war ii can be attributed to the development and adoption of new technologies. yet the budget proposed drastic cuts to research at the national institutes of health, the national science foundation, the national err naughtics and space administration, among others. as -- err naughtics and space ad-- arow naughtics and space -- a; eronautics and space administration as aamong others. you cannot turn on and off research like a faucet. under the majority's budget that valuable research will be ended and it's important -- and these important discoveries will probably not be made in the united states. the majority wants to impose such cuts on top of the cuts contained in the sequester, even though this effects of the sequester are just beginning to be felt. for example, in the coming weeks, airport control towers will begin to cl

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: i'm just titillated by the whole thing. >> we've had several stories about when i ran 20 years ago and when i ran this time around and so a lot of the stories were about that. typically, you know, the more progressive. >> stephanie: you know what's interesting is i think it has become -- nonpartisan issue. i wouldn't say bipartisan, would yo
president clinton had seen president assad in geneva in january 1994. and prior to the trip, we had, you know, the prime minister conveyed to us what it is he wanted to see come out of it. and we actually produced what it is he wanted to see come out of it. so i walked into the meeting with rabin feeling highly confident, you know, all right, we did what you asked. and the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. now, why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. and if you go into these kinds of meetings and the expectations are very high, then each leader is suddenly worried about what you're going to ask of them. when the expectations are low, you're in a much better position to have a serious conversation, and you can actually explore, all right, what are the possibilities here. but maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about what are the consequences of not getting anything done with each side? and if the consequences are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible, and where could t
